Establishing a New Club or Rechartering an Existing Group

Establishing a new club

  • A club must have at least 10 active members to obtain official college recognition. All returning students must have at least a 2.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA). New students can also join clubs. The Office of Student Life and Leadership will verify the enrollment status and GPA of each student listed on the charter application.
  • Each club must have a faculty/staff advisor. Any part-time or full-time college staff or faculty may serve as a club advisor.
  • Hold a meeting to:
    • Establish a Constitution (establish Bylaws if needed). Samples are available in the Office of Student Life and Leadership.
    • Elect officers and ratify the Constitution and Bylaws.
  • Complete the Club Charter application below.
    • Information needed from members and advisors to complete the charter application:
      • Name
      • Address
      • Phone number
      • Email addresses (student email – MyTNCC login @email.vccs.edu)
      • Students’ emplid ID number assigned by the college
      • Advisor(s) phone number, office room number and building
  • Send the official Club Constitution and Bylaws to studentlifeandleadership@tncc.edu
